Indiabulls withdraws frivolous petition against Swamy & PGurus. Murky tricks to sabotage freedom of speech collapses

A brazen attempt by Indiabulls to restrain some from writing about them has imploded and shows the hubris of some who think they can get away with anything

At last good sense prevailed on controversial finance company Indiabulls. On Friday we came to know that the company unconditionally withdrew their frivolous petition. Some of us were getting ready to challenge the Interim Order of Justice Mukta Gupta of the Delhi High Court, after taking the help of Dr. Swamy and give a fitting reply. The order prevented Dr. Swamy, I, PGurus from writing about Indiabulls till the next hearing which was three months out.

We were looking forward to having our day in the court but Indiabulls decided to withdraw the case. It is like the enemy ran away even before one can take up guns. I am glad to note that good sense prevailed.

According to the petition, Indiabulls is annoyed by our cartoon (which is published above in the header and below) and our report on Subramanian Swamy’s letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Indiabulls illegalities.  None of us were given an opportunity to state our point of view as the order was delivered ex-parte. What happened to innocent till proven guilty?

What did PGurus write about Indiabulls that was false?

There was one post and one cartoon that were published on PGurus and these are listed below:

  1. Subramanian Swamy charges Indiabulls of laundering more than Rs. 1 Lakh Crores. Demands probe by SIT and Special Audit[1],
  2. Congress’s Bull-iant idea smashed[2].

What was written on 1 above? Merely that a senior leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), had written to the Prime Minister about Indiabulls and the need for a Special Investigation Team (SIT).  Dr. Swamy’s letter was published by many media houses before us and after us. First, it was published in the CNN-IBN site. Many published Dr. Swamy’s shocking letter revealing the financial bungling by Indiabulls alleging connivance with many politicians.

Apart from us, notices were sent to all Social Media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.  What was shocking was that the next hearing of the case was posted to December. That was three months after! Our freedom of expression should be restricted to three months without hearing us. We were planning to challenge it in higher forums next week and were preparing for it but Indiabulls have now unconditionally withdrawn the case.

Moreover, already another Delhi High Court bench headed by Chief Justice D N Patel is seized with the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Prashant Bhushan and Kamini Jaiswal on the illegalities and money laundering by Indiabulls.

Who drafted the petition?

I have to wonder as to how an advocate(s) can draft such a frivolous petition, knowing full well that it goes against the spirit of freedom of speech. Was it easy money that prompted them to send one on behalf of an egotistic client? Should they not have advised their client on the futility of the petition? Mahatma Gandhi, himself a lawyer, had said that the lawyers’ profession is like that of a liar and he also said that the basic duty of the advocate is to teach the client what is the law and what remedies legally he will get. Anyway, these things don’t work in the eyes of those who want to mint money at any cost.

The irony of it all was that it was Advocate Rajiv Nayar who argued for Indiabulls against us and Subramanian Swamy. Who is Rajiv Nayar? He is the son of the great journalist Kuldip Nayar, who fought a lot for freedom of speech and expression in India. And his son as an advocate argued for Indiabulls’ frivolous petition which was prima facie against the spirit of freedom of speech and expression.

Indiabulls Cheering Squad

That Indiabulls developed cold feet and withdrew the case is good but I would have like to have had my day in the court and show these hypocrites for what they are. Worse, some paid troll artists (some uncouth Public Relations (PR) agents too) had joined in the chorus and abused Dr. Swamy and I, only to slink away to their rat holes when challenged to a debate.

As it is said in Mundaka Upanishad, Satyameva Jayate (Truth always triumphs).

  2. Sir these are all good. But here a question to all learned counsels. I invested in Indiabulls real estate at Rs206 and bought 7000 shares. Now the price is around Rs 40. Ever since dispute stated, the share price is came down from 100 to 40. Now we are much worried for recovery. Persons like me has no role in this matter. But suffering loss. I invested hard-earned money in it. The big players like sameer gahlot will sustain risk but what about a small invester like me.

    • It is your decision to buy Indiabulls Shares and your to bear the consequences. What were you doing when stocks were crumpling? You waited. It was your call and you have to face it. When looters caught, this small investor cries should be ignored. You invested as per your decision and you have to face it.

  3. The main issue is how Delhi High Court’s lady Judge Justice Mukta Gupta passed such an Order gagging without hearing opposite side? Indiabulls tried to bully Subramanian Swamy with help of uncouth people. But they forgot Dr.Swamy is from Madurai, land of Jellikkattu, where bulls are tamed by warriors. Good that Delhi HC Chief Justice Patel issued notice to Govt to speak on Indiabulls illegalities mentioned in the PIL by Prashant Bhushan and Kamini Jaiswal.
